Full AEW Battle of the Belts II Match Card:

  • TNT Championship Match: Scorpio Sky (c) vs. Sammy Guevara
  • ROH World Championship: Jonathan Gresham (c) vs. Dalton Castle

Battering the Beast

AEW Women’s World Champion “La Mera Mera” Thunder Rosa has had about enough of the disrespectful ways of “The Native Beast” Nyla Rose and her mentor Vickie Guerrero. In the first AEW Dynamite after Rosa won her crowning achievement, she was unceremoniously interrupted and assaulted by the Vicious Vixens. Undeterred, Thunder Rosa would come out, time and time again, to address her loyal fans.

However, the result always ends up being the same; Rose and Guerrero interrupt and steal the spotlight off of Rosa. For Thunder Rosa, the disrespect ends here. Rosa believes she earned every bit of her time in the limelight, as the reigning and defending AEW Women’s World Champion.

These antics will not go unpunished. This Saturday night, “The Native Beast” better be on her toes. As Thunder Rosa will give her all she can handle. Will Thunder Rosa be successful in her first title defense or will Nyla Rose regain the AEW Women’s World Championship and start her second reign?


Dalton Castle and The Boys make their way to AEW at Battle of the Belts. Castle challenges the undisputed Ring of Honor World Champion Jonathan Gresham with the gold on the line. Two weeks after going to hell and back with Bandido at Supercard of Honor XV, Gresham defends the ROH World Championship this Saturday night fight night.

Not to be outdone, Castle picked up a massive win on the same night opposite Joe Hendry. Dalton Castle once held the ROH World Title for over six months. Suffice it to say, he wouldn’t mind another run with the gold. However, standing in his way is one of the best, if not, the best technical wrestlers the professional wrestling business has to offer. Something’s got to give this Saturday night at Battle of the Belts.

Will Dalton Castle win his second ROH World Championship? Or will Jonathan Gresham add another top-notch performer to his list of victims? Find out this Saturday night, Battle of the Belts, live on TNT!
